It would be interesting to know exactly what this means. Would it be something like a Russian Monroe Doctrine, given force through its acceptance by the United States?

I should really read what I post more carefully. As the article had previously been all about Iraq, I’d read it as an agreement that Russia had interests in Iraq. Despite the facts that the words themselves say former Soviet Union. Ooops.

In my defence, I’m dumb.
